    Making Homemade Deoderant

    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    I may have to try this as well. The last time I tried making my own it called for beeswax and it ended up an anti-perspiring brick.

    As a word of note to people who are trying to avoid aluminum: research your baking soda. Some baking sodas use aluminum.

    Am I the only one that didn't get how much coconut butter and Shea butter should be put in it? There aren't any quantities. If it's prize is under 3 dollars, it should be like 50 gr of each, but I can't find where it says how much. Anyway, it's cool, I'll try it, definitely!

    It doesn't say anywhere. I'm sure if you google other recipes you can get an idea. I know that isn't super helpful, but it's worth a shot.

    Re: Making Homemade Deoderant

    I'll be honest...I didn't even notice. Unless its for something medicinal, I use recipes like this more as a guideline. Preference for consistency is going to vary, so I likely wouldn't have used their amounts anyway!!

    thalassa, you are right - most of the times I use all sorts of recipes as guidelines, just haven't made anything like that. Still, I found proportions in a link given in the article, so I made the deodorant and I am happy to say it's great! Actually I am finding it hard to find a deodorant that smells like my perfume, so I sprayed some of it in the deodorant and now I have a deodorant and perfume which smell the same. Fantastic. Thank you so much for posting it!
